A wedding invitation can be a very fun yet important part of the wedding planning. Since it is so important and it will act as the first impression that your guests will have of the wedding and often will become a memory or keepsake item for you it is important to spend some time thinking about the right option for you. You can easily pick up on the theme of your wedding and especially bring in the time of year. A dark velvety red wedding invitation will obviously look out of place for a summer wedding.
Wedding invitations are different from invitations that are bought for birthdays. They let guests know about the wedding and give an important preview about the style of the event. Invites come in a few basic varieties that say something different about each wedding. Typical invitations are small and somewhat plain cards with information about the couple and wedding day included. More couples are using photo cards that show off the couple's engagement photos. There are cards that look like greeting cards and cards that are complex with different shapes and accented styling. Each card works for specific kinds of weddings.
